In any case, this is a wifi high-throughput mesh protocol competition, so it’s not exactly what we do, but we can definitely learn from some of the results. We have a new Chief Scientist beginning on 8/31 and he’s gonna do even more magical things to our mesh protocol
We’re hiring someone to launch a digital magazine around the human elements driving decentralization — and not just technological decentralization, but any and all projects and movements related to bottom-up, people-powered ideas. If you can think of anyone who has an interest in this area and has editorial & community experience, please RT:
My cofounder J, who runs our goTenna Pro product line and specifically works with first responders (and other professional users), reminds me we’ve actually already actually done this, in a collaboration with University of Colorado Boulder!
Edit: Clarifying this paper & study was conducted using goTenna v1 (non-meshing)… so you can imagine how much more exciting it gets with mesh capability!
Shared this in another thread, but it’s quite appropriate to share here as well. goTenna’s new Chief Scientist (Ram Ramanathan) presented these slides to part of our team today to contextualize the history of mesh networks as well as the opportunities for optimizing mesh protocols and incentivizing their build-out (potentially with blockchain layer):
